Mario Ceroli





Castel Frentano 1938.
Mario Ceroli is an Italian sculptor. Ceroli contributed significantly to the reformulation of the artistic language of that time, to the development of installations and a new conception of sculpture. Ceroli's production is characterized by the use of natural and apparently modest materials, in particular untreated wood, but also fabrics, plastics and aluminum. His creations, sometimes polychrome and serialized, represent common objects, such as numbers, letters of the alphabet, human figures, silhouettes attributable to the icons of Italian art.Over the years, Ceroli has dedicated himself to the decoration of numerous public spaces, such as the Churches of Santa Maria Madre del Redentore of Tor Bella Monaca in Rome (1987) and of San Carlo Borromeo in Naples (1990). He also works
as a theatrical set designer, collaborating with the Teatro Stabile of Turin (1968) and La Scala in Milan (1971) and the Teatro la Fenice in Venice (2018). His works are present in the collections of the main museums in Italy and abroad, while a large group is exhibited at the National Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art in Rome. Mario Ceroli currently lives in Rome, where with unchanged passion, he continues his activity as an artist, sculptor and set designer.
